Fathom Events, Arts Alliance, and Seventh Art Productions invite audiences to enjoy an intimate tour of the blockbuster exhibit Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs when Matisse comes to select cinemas nationwide for a must-see event on Tuesday, January 13.
Hailed as the most successful exhibition in Tate Modern’s history, this landmark exhibit explores the final chapter in Matisse’s career in which he began ‘carving into colour’ and his series of spectacular cut-outs was born. Full of insight and emotion, this one-night cinema event features rare archival footage of the artist at work, unique personal interviews with Matisse’s friends, Tate director Nicholas Serota and MoMA director Glenn Lowry, and exclusive new footage from The Museum of Modern Art, where the exhibit is currently on view through February 8, 2015. Cinema audiences will also be treated to breathtaking new performances by Royal Ballet principal dancer Zenaida Yanowsky and jazz musician Courtney Pine which reflect the color, the freedom and the innovation of Matisse’s work.
